Will you receive the coupon in the mail if you have a Cedar Point pass with the Geauga Lake add-on?

If you read the promotion on the GL website, you'll see the procedure. It's just like using a cross-CF pass now; it will be done by hand at the park.

One thing that Cedar Fair needs to do is to convince more people that GL is no longer Six Flags with all of its problems. What appears to have happened to keep GLs attendance down is many people bypassing the park to go to CP instead. They aren't aware of the changes that have occurred at GL. What needs to be done is to encourage more visitors to go to both parks. This is especialy important for those who like waterparks and are attracted to parks that have water attractions and other attractions for one price.

One other thing that Cedar Fair should consider is a 2 park ticket that would include a day at CP and a day at GL for a special price.

That, or the other thing they ought to be doing is in each park, promote the other. Like on the back page of the park map brochure, for instance, include a couple of inches promoting the other park. Low key, but easily visible...

2-Day Ride and Slide Ticket

You get 4 tickets for $65 that are good for 2 days. You get 2 tickets to Cedar Point (one for each day), and 2 tickets for Soak City (one for each day). The best thing is that they let you bounce between the two parks. Also, the stamps that they use when you leave Cedar Point don't wash off for a couple of days.

As to what Dave said about promoting each other in the parks, I'm surprised they don't do this already. It's really a no-brainer. While at MIA last month, we noticed a "billboard" on their car ride of TTD.

LOL CF yanks out the heart of the park and expects it to live? Even Kinzel himself said it may have been a mistake to remove the animals.

And to simply move the waterpark from the ride side to the seaworld side (which is basically what was done) made it clear to the public that this was not MORE park, it was much less park for the money.

Everytime I've been to GL under CP it's been drearily empty, and un-fun

When it was Six Flags, hoards of people were there, most were having a good time.

Where in that equation, may I ask, do you get to visit GL?

Also, is it just me, or are those CP-pass-accepted days going to be the most crowded days the park as ever seen?


Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

After 3 seasons and still low attendance numbers, it might be time for CF to just eliminate the add-on charge between CP and GL. Basically just get rid of any restrictions.

I was there about a month ago on a Saturday and I was literally walking on rides. Even the waterpark wasn't overly crowded and it was about 90 degrees out.

In addition to the people going to CP while ignoring GL, I wonder, how many have decided to go to some of the PA parks such as KW and Waldameer, instead of going to GL. Does free parking, better food, etc. make a difference? Or maybe it is just a better assortment of family rides at these parks. Then there is PKI which continues to do well. Also, how many are just cutting back on parks altogether.

The problem at GL might be too much emphasis on coasters which creates some redundancy with CP. GL needs to be a more of a family park combined with a waterpark, something like LC or HW. Sure they can have some coasters but they need more and better flat rides, darkrides, transport rides, and non-waterpark water rides. More food variety would also help as well.

Someone just HAD to bring up the animals. Granted Dick Kinzel did state that, like two years ago, but things are a little different now. I have not heard anyone mention how they miss the animals in any of my visits to the park this year (and it's been pretty much every weekend).


And to simply move the waterpark from the ride side to the seaworld side (which is basically what was done) made it clear to the public that this was not MORE park, it was much less park for the money.

Moving the water park was the BEST thing they did. They closed a very compact, landlocked water park and created a beautiful oasis on the south side in which people could actually move in.


When it was Six Flags, hoards of people were there, most were having a good time.

I wouldn't say hoards since SF kept having lower attendance numbers in those few short years after the conversion, but I bet most of them moaned about the lousy customer service and vowing to never come back.

I can tell you that I missed the animals on my recent visit but I guess I am in the minority(or so people would say in Ohio) :)

Say what you will about Six Flags, but they had something special there. To bad they messed it up.
